I found this recipe online and thought it sounded like an excellent accompaniment for simply grilled chicken or pork. I brine the meats in a salt, sugar, basil brine for about 1/2 to 1 hour before grilling to enhance their flavor and make them moist and tender. Nice, easy and light Summer dinner with grilled romaine salad with garden ripe tomato slices and light vinaigrette.
